Medals will be contested across seven events amongst competitors under the age of 19 on 31 December 2007. The entry deadline for the championship is 15 April 2007.
The 2007 Youth Worlds begins with the official arrival day on 12 July, followed the practice race and Opening Ceremony on Friday 13 July. Racing takes place from 14-20 July, with a lay day on 17 July. Twelve races are scheduled for each event, except for the two 29er events, where 16 races are scheduled.
Racing will take place out of Portsmouth Olympic Harbour (POH), the venue for the 1976 Olympic Sailing Competition and the annual CORK Regatta, an ISAF Grade 1 event for the Laser and Laser Radial. Following Toronto in 1976, Montreal in 1989 and Lunenburg in 2002 this will be the fourth ISAF Youth Worlds hosted in Canada. At last year's Youth Worlds in Weymouth, Great Britain, Luke RAMSAY (CAN) scored victory in the Laser to give Canada their third ISAF Youth World Championship gold medal.
